Attorney Julie Dubick, chief of staff to mayor Jerry Sanders, reported a few tourist-related assets of her own, including a tidy stock holding in Hilton Hotels valued at between $2000 and $10,000 and an interest in a limo-leasing company, Limo Financing LLC, worth between $10,000 and $100,000. The mayor and his crew have been lobbying hard of late for a convention center expansion next to the new bay-front Hilton…Meanwhile, San Diego chief of police Bill Lansdowne, under the gun with at least nine of his cops being investigated for crimes ranging from drunk driving to rape, apparently won’t have to worry about enjoying a sweet retirement if he’s ever forced from office.
According to his personal statement of economic interests, covering last year and filed this February, Lansdowne owned shares of a mutual fund called ING valued between $100,000 and $1 million. That’s in addition to the annual pension he received from the city of San Jose for his service as police chief there, worth more than $100,000. And he still owned a house in the Bay Area, valued between $100,000 and $1 million, rented out for between $10,000 and $100,000 annually, along with another place in Fallbrook worth between $100,000 and $1 million. Out on the rubber-chicken circuit, Chief Lansdowne turned up at awards dinners (comped, of course) that were held by a host of business groups including those by the Neighborhood Market Association ($75), San Diego County Hotel-Motel Association ($75), Gaslamp Quarter Association ($140), and the San Diego County Taxpayers Association ($50).
